Google’s Phil Harrison just presented a new game controller developed to support the new streaming service called Stadia.
This is your gateway to the best of Stadia.
The new device uses the same controls we are used to seeing on a classic controller, though with additional quirks. Near the usual Start and Select buttons, there are also fullscreen and Google assistant controls. During the gameplay, players may ask Google Assistant things like "how do I beat this boss." Stadia will pause the gameplay and try to answer the question through YouTube.
The layout of the controllers reminds of Dualshock, with D-Pad situated at the top-left corner.
According to the Phil Harrison, the controller can connect with the router via wi-fi to minimize the lag input (no need to connect with the device used to output the gameplay image).
Release date and pricing of the Stadia controller hasn't been revealed yeat.
